For a lovely summer treat, why not make some delicious Pimm's cupcakes with a fruity strawberry & rasberry centre, a sugar buttercream and topped with fresh fruits for a lovely summery treat. We love That Cute Little Cake recipe: http://www.thatcutelittlecake.com/2013/05/recipe-pimms-cupcake.html
These punchy cupcakes make a delicious accompainment to a lazy afternoon watching Wimbledon.
PIMM'S CUPS JELLY SHOTS
These are a thing of beauty but don't be fooled by their looks, they pack a heafty punch. Cucumber, strawberries, orange and mint are mixed together with Pimm's to make the base and a tart lemon syrup and ginger ale are mixed in along with the gelatin to mimic the tartness of the classic cocktail. Served with slivers of strawberries and individual mint leaves.
PIMM'S O'CLOCK ICE LOLLIES
Put a few mint leaves, some thinly-sliced strawberry pieces and a splash of orange zest into lolly moulds. Mix up a jug of Pimm’s and lemonade (no ice) in your preferred ratio, pour over the fruit and mint and freeze for a couple of hours until solid. Perfect for a hot summer days!
Refreshing cucumber and mint, summer sweetness of strawberry, uplifting orange and lemon and the all important fruity alcoholic punch of Pimms, blend altogether and freeze...voila!
PIMM'S SWISS ROLL
